My first Frtillaria but need correct ID !
Pl. check comparative images at /species/a—l/c/caryophyllaceae/silene
Silene indica (Roxb.) Roxb. ex Otth ??
I think does not matches with images at
Check other species not available in efi site.
I already checked the link but I could not find matching images in the net.
Caryophyllaceae member, Silene sp. could be S. vulgaris, Check with that …
Thanks, … Looks different from images at Silene vulgaris
Yes … Looks different.
On checking many species from the checklist along with comparative images at Silene, I found it close to Silene nepalensis Majumdar as per GBIF – Specimen (from Nepal) Flora of China (2700–5100 m– Basal leaves linear-lanceolate, 3–14 cm × 3–7 mm, midvein prominent, glabrous or subglabrous, base attenuate into petiole, ± connate, apex acuminate; distal leaves sessile, homomorphic with basal leaves) FoC illustration Checklist of Nepal.
Yes, it looks more close to S. nepalensis
I guess it matches with keys at efn.
A reply from Magnus Linden ji:
Magnus ji is right.
As we have already discussed, it looks different from images at Silene indica
So we can consider it as an accepted name and not a synonym as listed in the databases.
Yes …. I have agreed to it !
